Drop in Qatar's community Covid-19 cases

By QLNews

The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) had reported 2,204 Covid-19 cases in Qatar — 1,669 in the community and 535 among travellers.

This records a sharp fall in the number of community cases compared to Tuesday when Covid-19 cases in Qatar were 2,124.

With 3,985 recoveries of Covid-19 during the past 24 hours, the total number of cases recovered in the country is 297,167.

The death of an 81-year-old person with chronic diseases was recorded. However, the necessary medical care was given.

The National Vaccination Programme Data shows that 5,692,705 doses have been administered — 37,428 in the past 24 hours. A total of 704,321 booster diseases — vaccinating 86.9% of the total population with two doses.

The rise of Covid-19 in recent weeks, specifically the Omicron variant, is prevalent even today with countries having new mutants rapidly spreading.

The Ministry of Public Health stresses the importance of receiving the booster dose without delay (especially qualified members of society) due to the danger of the stage in fighting the virus

The research from recent studies indicates the effectiveness of the booster dose to prevent severe infection against the Omicron variant.

Most of the Covid-19 cases admitted to the intensive care unit are unvaccinated or received their second dose over six months ago.

In Qatar, Covid-19 is still a health threat. All individuals must cooperate and do their part to help control the virus by maintaining social distance, avoiding crowded places, wearing masks, and washing hands frequently.

Individuals must receive the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Those with symptoms must contact the '16000' helpline immediately. If Covid-19 is detected earlier, it will be easier to receive proper treatment and recover.
